What’s the significance of Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day is a meaningful occasion that captures the irreplaceable role of mothers and motherhood. It’s a time to show love, gratitude, and acknowledgment for the endless care and love mothers give throughout their lives. This day holds significance in honouring and appreciating the sacrifices and constant support of mothers, celebrating the vital role of motherhood, and acknowledging the deep influence mothers have on their children’s lives and society overall.

History of Mother’s Day

The origins of Mother’s Day can be traced back to ancient Greek and Roman traditions with similar celebrations among Christians in England. However, to understand the significance of Mother’s Day today we must look to the early 20th century. During this time, ancient Greeks and Romans held festivals honouring mother goddesses such as Rhea and Cybele usually in spring and emphasised themes of fertility and motherhood.

Christians also embraced the concept of honouring mothers, particularly through ‘Mothering Sunday.’ During these celebrations, people would return to their ‘mother church’ , often the main cathedral in their area. This tradition went beyond attending church services and  involved families gathering for prayers with children offering flowers and gifts to their mothers as a token of appreciation.
